Reliability (MTBF, usage rate)
Replaceable print cartridge(s)
Replaceable print cartridge(s) have been used in your printer, greatly reducing its user maintenance requirements, as these are the components that experience the greatest wear and tear.
Under normal use, you will probably find that you have to replace the black cartridge more often than the rest.
Printer cleaning
Cleaning is limited to the outside of the machine. Use a damp sponge or a soft cloth and household cleaner.
  warning:
To avoid an electric shock, make sure that the printer is switched off and unplugged before cleaning it. Do not allow water to get inside the printer.
  caution:
Do not use abrasive cleaners on the printer.
Any maintenance or repairs beyond this should be done by a qualified service technician.
"Normal" printer use
"Normal" printer use means less than
  • 20 pages per day (if medium-density E/A0 CAD plots), or
  • 12 pages per day (if medium-density E/A0 image prints).
If your drawings are smaller than E/A0, the number of pages per day can be higher.
If printer use is less than this amount, it is unlikely that service is needed. If printer use exceeds this amount, it is possible that, after a period of time, service is necessary. The printer itself keeps an internal count of total pages printed and total passes of the cartridge carriage. If the front panel periodically displays Status: Maintenance Advised, this means that your use of the printer has exceeded one of the following warranty limits:
  • either 20,000 pages printed, or
  • 4,500,000 passes of the cartridge carriage.
Contact your local HP dealer or HP service engineer to arrange to have your printer serviced. After servicing, the message will disappear. If you choose not to have the printer serviced, you may continue to use the printer as normal, but may encounter a number of operational or print-quality problems.
You can check your current count of pages printed and passes of cartridge carriage by printing the Service Configuration Plot.
To print the service configuration plot
  1. Make sure media is loaded.
  2. In the Full Menu mode, select the Utilities menu.
  3. Choose the Service Config option and press ENTER.
